Jordan is an unincorporated community in Linn County, in the U.S. state of Oregon. It lies along Oregon Route 226, southeast of Stayton and about halfway between Scio and Lyons.[1]

Thomas Creek flows through Jordan.[1] A covered bridge, the Jordan Bridge, built in 1937, was a 90-foot (27 m) Howe truss span that crossed the creek here. Dismantled in 1985, its timbers were moved to Stayton and reassembled in that city's Pioneer Park.[2]

The community was once the site of Monastery of Our Lady of Jordan, Oregon.
